    Anyone having a go on the Grand National on Saturday.

    I have always had a flutter on this since my old Dad, bless him, won on Nicholas Silver on my Wedding Day and the party :Eeek: was great.

    Then the time I won big time on Foinavon :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I usually have a dabble on the National.

    Usually a few small each way bets.

    I might, but I must confess I don't like bookies offices much.

    We generally have a sweep at work, which I haven't won in the last 21 years.

    I had quite a big win a few years ago when Carl Llewelyn won it for the second time I think.

    I was in his class all through school and stuck £50 on him:thumb:

    I used to live within spitting distance of Aintree racecourse, we could sit in our garden and hear the commentary but I never went.
